From Your Pastor's Heart - June 7, 2015

Good Morning Family,

          It is hard to believe the summer months have begun!  Kid’s Camp 2015 (which I have more to say about below) is already under our belt and we have a full summer ahead as we press on “toward the goal”!  As busy as things may get, we need to fix our eyes on Jesus.  It is through His power and for His glory that we accomplish anything in ministry here.  As we continue to reach out and spread His Gospel among those of Cape Fair and the surrounding area, we pray for those who will hear the Gospel to be sensitive to its life changing and destiny altering message.

          I would like to flesh out a couple of things that are in the bulletin.  First off, a major date change:  The Community-wide Outreach Event that was scheduled for June 13 has been moved from the weekend of the Eagle’s Pig Races to coincide with our Church-wide Rummage Sale on the 4th of July. After speaking with a few people in the last few days about my thoughts on making those two events more targeted and effective for the church ministries, I have combined the two events to occur on perhaps one of the weekends that is most highly celebrated by the area folks and attended by visitors to the lake alike.

          There is the major fireworks display in the evening of the 3rd down at the marina and then we will be out on the 4th right along the highway in our front church lawn giving away ice cream cones, bottled water, information about the church, and Gospel tracts along with a verbal witness as the Lord may provide opportunity to anyone who stops in.  Along with that, we will have a rummage sale going on at the same time.  More information to follow next week about collection of items for the sale.  But, in the meantime, be looking at how the Lord would have you provide or help out in this event.  So, to recap, July 4th Church Wide Rummage Sale with Free Ice Cream and Bottled Water .

          We also have a few important items coming up at our next Business meeting on July 12th.  We were going to bring a couple of these items before then, but I feel it is best we accomplish all of them at once at our regularly scheduled meeting one month from now.  Two of these, in particular, are the addition of a new chairperson to our By-laws Ad-hoc Committee and the implementation of a new Long Range Planning Committee.  Both of these things are crucial to moving ahead with the Lord as a church.

          Finally, but not least, I want to thank those who took our kids to camp this past week: Tracy Hudson, Amanda Barker, and Billy Wright.  Robin and I went up on Family Night the last day of camp and were able to spend some time seeing what the kids learned that week.  There were several decisions that we will be following up on and lots of good times had by our students.  I must tell you, I am impressed with the level of commitment to Christ of our kids.  They are being led by example each week by our leaders and it shows as you are around our kids for any length of time.  Thanks to our leaders!!!!

          As always, my prayer is that we would all Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth.”    II Timothy 2:15.          

Humbly Yours,

Bro Steve
